The Happiest 5K

Los Angeles -- It's called "The Happiest 5K on the Planet," for good reason; you can't help but smile!

Held at Dodger Stadium, more than 15,000 runners, walkers and dancers gathered at 7am for the Zumba dance warm up, dancing to songs like, "Happy."

At 8am, the laid back, 5 kilometer run began. Participants passed through a series of five different colored gauntlets, covering the happy runners with a powdered splash of blue, pink, orange, purple and yellow before finishing through a tunnel of colored, swirling confetti.

The event ended with more dancing and throwing of rainbow powder. What a fun and clean way to kick off summer of 2014 -- LA style.
